Our latest Riveted Summer theme is the Summer of Self-Discovery!

We’re featuring books that will help you on your journey to figuring out who you want to be and how to get there. As you read, you’ll meet characters who are facing difficulties, decisions, and changes in life that will irrevocably change who they are. As each character figures out how he or she wants to respond to his/her challenges, you’ll see how each experience and moment changes them-for better or worse. These characters will help you realize that it’s how you respond to the difficult times in your life that truly define who you are.

With a theme so powerful, it was inevitable that we’d give you the opportunity to own these life-changing stories for free. That’s why we have the Summer of Self-Discovery giveaway! Enter the giveaway below and then start reading while you wait for the results!

    The Fault In Our Stars!

  2. JBelkBooks says:

    My two favorite books, All The Bright Places & Looking for Alaska, really helped me realize that I wanted to be someone that helps people when I can. I’ve always been a caring person, but these novels really helped me understand that I can use my best aspects to help others! (:

  3. KristyPetree says:

    Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone helped me to have hope in myself and inspired me to try my best to offer that same hope for others with similar obstacles in life. Thanks.

  4. Love2R3ad says:

    Always love to explore new authors & books! Hope to win!

  5. knightwriter4 says:

    I Loved If I Stay by Gayle Forman. It helped me realize how precious life is and the true value of family.

  6. jclay says:

    Girl Against the Universe was very empowering. It made me look at obstacles in my life differently and more optimistically.

  7. booklover97 says:

    The Shadowhunter Chronicles! I want to be as confident and badass as the shadowhunters, especially Clary and Izzy :)

  8. KateT16 says:

    I think every book I read, I learn about different perspectives and ideas! I LOVE BOOKS!!

  9. cusic1981 says:

    The different challenges and my responses to them.

  10. gladeslibrarian says:

    Every book has the power to change a person. I loved THIS STAR WILL NEVER GO OUT and THIRTEEN REASONS WHY.

  11. TiffieKittie says:

    I’m going to choose the book that helped me a lot this year. My grandmother passed away earlier this year and I was lost for a little bit. She was a mom figure to me in many ways. Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines helped me through that time. There’s just so much to that book that applied to my life at that time.

  12. arianna iqbal says:

    The foxhole court

  13. ebug200 says:

    O.M.G I can’t wait to read Draw The Line!!

  14. Nicolle says:

    I haven’t read any of these books yet but have heard great things about Draw The Line, Fragile Like Us, and Saints and Misfits.

  15. cyborgcinderella says:

    I think Alex, Approximately has actually helped me a lot in figuring out who I want to be 😊

  16. cbarnett8722 says:

    This would be an amazing prize pack! They all look so good!

  17. Harry Potter… I want to be a witch! Hahahaha. Seriously though, we all know that can’t happen. :/

  18. alyssayuri says:

    This is hard… But I think Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell made me feel as though it’s not too late to be who you want to be. Are at least rediscover what one is passionate about.

  19. kcmmp13 says:

    Harry Potter. Hermione let me feel like I wasn’t alone. There were people out there like me.

  20. Mama Reads says:

    Definitely a couple books come to mind, first The Secret Garden, and later, 1984.

  21. reneejr says:

    Your Erroneous Zones by Wayne Dyer had a profound effect on me.

  22. Rowanartist says:

    Some of the others I’m not sure about reading because of the hard topics (and I’m trying to focus on my own struggles) but I really want to read Draw the line because if artist protagonist, and I’m curious about saints and misfits even while I’m hesitant to face myself the important topic that it tackles…

  23. alig1020 says:

    I think that Tamora Pierce’s Tortal books had a huge impact in the person I am/want to be. Her protagonists are such strong women, and I hope to be even slightly like Alanna, Kel, or any of the others.

  24. lollyletsgo says:

    Harry Potter!!! I LOVE that series!

  25. kata says:

    Probably A thousand splendid suns by khaled hosseini because the woman in it were extremely strong and resilient

  26. nozanich says:

    The Hobbit was the book I grew up with and probably ultimately inspired me to be a librarian!

  27. badwolfinthetardis says:

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway! I have wanted to read Draw the Line for awhile now!

  28. Throne of Glass when it talked about magic being books and libraries. I always knew I wanted to help people & I loved to read but working at a library will combine those 2 passions.

  29. mirandasummerset says:

    I LOVED the hobbit as a kid and it really taught me a lot about not being afraid and to be courageous in life and good to everybody!

  30. ALiss says:

    The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness was perfect in helping me figure out that helping others and accepting help in return will let me find who I want to be! A caring person!

  31. SarahLamary says:

    Definitely the Bible.

  32. susanbeamon says:

    Each book as I read it is important. Otherwise I would not read it.

  33. rachelisce says:

    Illusions by Richard Bach made me want to be limitless.

  34. rivsocsmith says:

    “Tell us what book has helped you most with discovering who you want to be!” “Decline and Fall” and “A Handful Of Dust” by Evelyn Waugh.

  35. bookworm2010 says:

    All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven. It definitely helped me become my own advocate for mental illness.

  36. Hailstormicus says:

    so excited for all these books!

  37. karatheredhead says:

    I really enjoyed the graphic novel, Tomboy by Liz Prince. I wish this book had been around when I was younger so I would know that being a tomboy is totally normal!

  38. KayWaites says:

    The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. This book changed a lot about my way of thinking when in situations that seem more complicated than they really are.

  39. kelseakreuch says:

    I found Amy Tan and Tamora Pierce’s books inspirational growing up. The first because Tan was the first Chinese American author I can remember reading and the second because Pierce wrote badass female fantasy protagonists. :)

  40. RoRo says:

    Words in deep blue

  41. The Chronicles of Narnia made me love fantasy when I was in grade school, and I still love that genre today.

  42. Romarin15 says:

    I love the Shadowhunter books by Cassandra Clare, but “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” by Betty Smith and “Watership Down” by Richard Adams also enchanted me.

  43. toriarocks95 says:

    This is probably one of the best giveaways I’ve seen on here. Super excited about this one!

  44. Alyce says:

    Why not do a Thirst giveaway???

  45. Lauraj123 says:

    Any Ellen Hopkins book. It really puts things in perspective and lets you realize how bad things can really be for some people but also that there is always hope!

  46. YorickWell says:

    Watership Down by Richard Adams. It took me 3! Starts to get through it, but since things clicked on the 3rd reading, I have read Watership Down every 18 months or so. It’s such a great book.

  47. Weeziel40er says:

    Harry Potter. Harry, Ron, and Hermione are the best role models as well as the actors who played them! They’re good kids! Though they’re not kids anymore. lol

  48. lurkykitty says:

    I don’t think I can name any one book. All the books I have read have influenced me in some way.

  49. clairebearihu says:

    There are too many books to list that really influenced me… I think my favorites have been the Lunar Chronicles as well as To Kill A Mockingbird.

  50. Babs73 says:

    My favorite books are romance, adventure, thrillers, and basically anything. Anne of Green Gables

  51. kmriley says:

    Saints and misfits sounds intersting!

  52. teffers8464 says:

    draw the line is my fave

  53. 811brynncess says:

    So many books have helped shape me, but most recently the princess saves herself in this one by amanda lovelace came into my life at a time when I had to learn to accept some things about myself that otherwise would’ve been impossible to do.

  54. tacos_tais says:

    Self-discovery!? I don’t think I have read a book that has really changed me. But maybe the books in the giveaway could.😜

  55. __karthika__ says:

    I think every book I have read has changed me in its own way!

  56. dawneees says:

    I havent read any of these yet. Im always looking for a way to better myself!
